Jets HC Robert Saleh said after Sunday's win over the Bears that RB Michael Carter has a sprained ankle but that the severity isn't yet known. We should have a better idea of Carter's status by the end of Monday.

Jets RB Michael Carter suffered an ankle injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Bears and is officially doubtful to return. With RB James Robinson scratched, New York is down to RBs Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson.

Jets RB James Robinson is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Bears. RBs Michael Carter, Ty Johnson and Zonovan Knight are dressed for New York. Robinson's absence is a slight boost to Carter's Week 12 fantasy stock.

Jets HC Robert Saleh would not commit to QB Zach Wilson as his Week 12 starter on Monday. “We’re keeping everything on the table," Saleh said. The Jets had been winning in spite of Wilson -- but that ended in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, when Wilson went 9 of 22 for 77 yards. He's completed just 55.6% of his passes this season, averaging 6.8 yards per attempt with 4 TDs and 5 INTs. Saleh wouldn't say whether he'd go with QB Joe Flacco or QB Mike White if Wilson is benched. None of those guys should be in your Week 12 fantasy plans, but Flacco or White would be at least a slight boost for New York's skill-position players.

Jets RBs Michael Carter and James Robinson split playing time and opportunities near-evenly Sunday in the 2nd games since the trade. Carter played 6 more snaps and beat Robinson in rushing yards (76-48) and receiving yards (10-5). But Robinson logged 1 more carry (13-12) and 1 more target (2-1). We should probably bet on the team keeping things fairly even going forward, though we'll see about the Jets' approach after the Week 10 bye.

Jets RB James Robinson (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Bills. He was added to the injury report on Saturday as questionable with a hamstring but evidently felt good enough in pregame warmups to give it a go. Robinson shouldn’t be in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Jets RB James Robinson was added to the injury report on Saturday with a hamstring and is now questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Bills. Robinson played just 22% of New York's offensive snaps in his team debut last week, finishing with 5 carries for 17 yards. He wasn't a recommended fantasy play even before this hamstring injury. His absence on Sunday would be a boost for RB Michael Carter.

Jets RB Michael Carter got the bulk of the backfield snaps in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, the 1st game since Breece Hall's ACL tear. He played 1 more snap than the combined total for Ty Johnson and James Robinson. The carry counts made it look closer. Carter's 7 rushes (for 26 yards) led the group, with Robinson taking 5 (for 17) and Johnson 2 (for 6). Carter dominated receiving opportunities, tying for 2nd on the team with 7 targets. he caught 4 for 35 yards. Johnson (2) and Robinson (1) combined for no receptions on 3 targets. We're betting on Carter as the touch leader going forward, even if Robinson works into more playing time. We'd also bet on the backfield continuing to be unexciting. Week 9 brings a terrible matchup for everything on offense, with Buffalo coming to town.

The Jaguars are trading RB James Robinson to the Jets for a conditional 6th-round pick (which could become a 5th-rounder), according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Robinson heads to a backfield that just lost Breece Hall for the season. His inside style should complement Michael Carter and keep the incumbent from taking on too heavy a workload -- and keep the team from needing to give too much to Ty Johnson. We'd still favor Carter as the better bet for PPR scoring in the Jets' backfield. He opened the season working ahead of Hall and still ranks 6th in the team in targets. Robinson's departure from Jacksonville clears the path for Travis Etienne to lead the Jags backfield the rest of the way. JaMycal Hasty should be the RB2 there going forward.

The MRI on Jets RB Breece Hall's knee revealed a torn ACL and a meniscus injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hall will miss the rest of the 2022 season -- and the meniscus injury could mean a longer rehab. Hall has about 10-and-a-half months before the start of the 2023 campaign. We'll keep an eye on his progress. The good news is that Hall has age on his side, turning just 22 next May. We still like him as a top-5 dynasty RB. His absence leaves Michael Carter as New York's clear lead back. We'll see if the 5-2 Jets make an addition at the position. Carter doesn't project as a workhorse.

In a game that likely saw rookie RB Breece Hall suffer an ACL tear, Jets RB Michael Carter gained just 29 yards on his team-leading 13 carries (2.2 per attempt). Carter did add 45 receiving yards on 2 receptions. Most of that came on a single 37-yard catch. Carter figures to lead the backfield going forward, with Ty Johnson the current #2. There are options available on the trade market, though, and we wouldn't be surprised to see the 5-2 Jets add someone there. Johnson carried 1 time for 3 yards and caught 1 pass for 6 yards in Sunday's win over Denver.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said after Sunday's win over the Broncos that RB Breece Hall is believed to have a torn ACL. We should get confirmation tomorrow, but it sounds like Hall's impressive rookie season is over. His absence will leave Michael Carter as New York's lead back -- and a likely RB2 in fantasy football.

Jets RB Breece Hall ran for 116 yards and a TD on 20 carries in Sunday's win over the Packers. He added 2 catches for 5 yards on 2 targets. That tied him for the team lead in receptions in a game that found the Jets attempting only 18 passes. RB Michael Carter rushed 6 times for 41 yards and caught 1 pass for 6 yards.

Jets RB Breece Hall rushed 18 times for 97 yards and a TD in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. Hall added another 100 yards receiving despite seeing just 2 targets. His 2 catches went for 79 and 21 yards. Hall worked clearly ahead of RB Michael Carter once again, though he watched Carter vulture a pair of rushing scores among 10 carries. QB Zach Wilson also ran for a TD from 5 yards out, and WR Braxton Berrios found the end zone from 15 yards out on his only carry. Hall is looking like a weekly fantasy football starter.

Jets HC Robert Saleh announced Wednesday that QB Zach Wilson has been medically cleared from the meniscus tear and bone bruise he suffered in his knee in mid-August. Barring a setback this week, Wilson will start Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. He shouldn't be in fantasy lineups, but we'll see what he means for New York's skill-position guys. QB Joe Flacco currently leads the NFL with 155 pass attempts but completed just 59% of them and averaged an ugly 5.8 yards per attempt. Wilson is certainly capable of beating those numbers.

Jets RB Breece Hall saw a playing-time leap in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. He went from playing less than half as many snaps as backfield mate Michael Carter in Week 2 to playing 6 more snaps than Carter against Cincinnati. The biggest change came in the passing game. According to Pro Football Focus, Hall trailed Carter 24-9 in Week 2 routes. The rookie led 31-21 in that category in Week 3. By halftime, hall had twice as many targets (8) as anyone else on the team. He finished with a team-high 11 looks, catching 6 for 53 yards. Hall trailed Carter 11-8 in carries but matched Carter's 39 rushing yards. Through 3 games, Hall now leads Carter by 5 targets. He has also averaged 0.9 more per rushing attempt and 2.1 more yards per reception. We'll see whether this marks an enduring change or was just a 1-week flip. We'll also see what effect QB Zach Wilson has upon his impending return.

Forced to play from behind in the 4th quarter, the Jets fed RB Breece Hall only 8 touches in Week 2. The rookie rushed 7 times for 50 yards, including a 23-yarder that showed off his plus vision, balance and burst. He was stuffed for a loss on the next play — a goal line chance — but later scored on a swing pass where the Browns defense failed to guard him. On the day, RB Michael Carter matched Hall in carries. Carter also topped the rookie 5-1 in targets, with Ty Johnson even mixing in for 3 targets. So until his usage improves, Hall will remain an RB3 for the foreseeable future. Next up is a home date with the Bengals.

Jets RB Michael Carter drew 10 carries to rookie Breece Hall's 6 in Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Ravens. Carter outperformed Hall on the ground, averaging 6.0 yards per rush to Hall's 3.8. Hall edged Carter 10-9 in targets, but Carter led the team with 7 receptions for 40 yards. Hall caught 6 for 38. We'll be watching this split all season, but Carter certainly gave no reason in Week 1 for the team to decrease his role.
